Some more on the speaker:
Since his PhD, he has been working on cancer-associated fibroblasts (CAFs) in colon cancer progression (De Wever et al., FASEBJ 2004, J Pathol 2003, J Cell Science 2004 over 1000 cumulative WOS citations). I He expanded his research into adipose tissue during his post-doc (Lapeire et al., Cancer Res 2014) and the secretory mechanisms of pro-metastatic signals (Hendrix et al., JNCI 2010, Cancer Res 2010). His current lab woks on tumor-environment interactions including design of model systems (De Jaeghere et al., Biomaterials 2018), response to therapy of CAFs (Tommelein et al., Cancer Res 2018), and exploitation of CAFs as therapy (De Vlieghere et al., Biomaterials 2015) and extracellular vesicles with the Hendrix lab (De Wever and Hendrix EMBOJ 2019).
